Waiting on Wednesday (#27)

'Waiting on Wednesday' is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

One of my favourite reads of last year - and perhaps of all-time - was Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I got sent it by Bloomsbury in exchange for an honest review, and I absolutely fell head-over-heels for the concept, the characters, and the writing. The other day, the cover for Crown of Midnight - the sequel to ToG - was revealed. So this week, that is what I am waiting on.


An assassin’s loyalties are always in doubt.
But her heart never wavers.

After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king's contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown – a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes.

Keeping up the deadly charade—while pretending to do the king's bidding—will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she's given a task that could jeopardize everything she's come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon -- forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice. 

Where do the assassin’s loyalties lie, and who is she most willing to fight for?

I am so incredibly excited, all I can do is squeal and wave my hands in the air! If you haven't read Throne of Glass, then you must must must add it straight away to your Goodreads - and if you read that and loved it, then don't forget to pick up Crown of Midnight!

So what are you waiting on this week? Leave a comment below!

  3. Great pick! This was a very popular WoW this week. Which means Throne of Glass must be awesome, so I'm gonna read it.
